Mission Markets

Good Evening Parents,

Mission Markets This Wednesday

Many thanks to our Year 1S and 1P parent helpers who kindly donated their time today to put together our bags for the Year One Lucky Dip stall. Your generous donations were greatly appreciated and I am sure that there will be lots of excitement from the students opening up their mystery bags on Wednesday!

If anyone would like to volunteer to set up our stall and man the stall from 11:30am-12:40pm on Wednesday your help would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know by email, or during Gathering Time if you would like to assist with this. The children will enter the hall at approximately 12pm to peruse the market stalls and play the games on offer.

Please pack a small cloth bag for your child to 'shop' with on Wednesday, as their will be second hand items for sale, as well as lots of prizes up for grabs throughout the course of the Mission Market. A small purse or wallet with some change (up to $5 maximum with your child's name on it) will be the best way to carry money.

The children are asked to wear Sports Uniform on this day. All parents are welcome to attend our whole school mass in the morning which will take place in the hall at 9am.

Have a lovely night!

Mission Markets - Week 5

Mission Markets
Our annual OLC Mission Markets are fast approaching (Wednesday 15th August). This year, both Year One classes are running a Lucky Dip stall. We are asking for donations of various small toys, stationery or wrapped lollies/lollipops that can be put into lucky dip bags for the children. If you can get your hands on bulk packs of party toys like parachute men, party glasses, balloons, erasers or pencils this will enable more children to have a chance at our lucky dip stall. Coles, K-Mart and The Reject Shop all have great party sections where you can purchase a variety of these items.

If we could have all donations brought into class by next Monday 13th August it would be much appreciated. Many thanks for your support with our Mission Markets. All funds raised go directly to Caritas to support those in need.



If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you,

Operation Christmas Child - Shoebox Appeal

Dear Parents,

Over the next couple of weeks, the Year One  children are going to participate in an initiative called 'Operation Christmas Child' which aims to pack a shoebox to give to a child who has never received a gift before. This ties into our school value of Compassion as we are helping less fortunate children in need.

Please see below an example of the provided shoe box for Operation Christmas child:





Your child will be grouped with three other children to contribute and pack the shoebox. The cost to send a shoe box will be $2.50 per child.  We are asking you to encourage your child to do something extra at home to earn the money that is needed to buy the item to put into the provided shoebox.

Your child will bring home a note which shows you what kind of items can be sent away in the shoebox. We are asking for all donations to be brought to school by Friday 7th September (end of week 8) please. It is very exciting for the children to share in this initiative which has been a part of the O.L.C. Community for the last 15 years.

Thank you for your support.

Sensational Salad Procedures

On Thursday morning, the Year One children took part in a procedure of how to make salad. The children brought in their delicious salad ingredients and with the help of Mrs. Hughes and Mr. Hayhow, the children got down to work.

The children chose their ingredients for their procedure and worked through the steps to create their Master chef inspired salad. When the children had finished, they came back into class and began to write their procedures which included the five elements of:

- A title
- A goal
- Ingredients
- Steps
- A check



The children loved making their salads and some even enjoyed eating them!

Thank you to everyone who donated delicious salad ingredients. We really appreciate it!

Salad making on Thursday 2nd August

Salad Ingredients Wanted!

Dear Parents, 

As a part of our Writing program this term we are expanding our knowledge on how to write a procedure. This week,  we will be reading and writing a class recipe for a 'plant' salad. On Thursday 2nd August we plan to make the salad, using ingredients from our own gardens (or fridges). We are asking that each child brings in one or two ingredients of their choice for our class salad on this day. Feel free to bring in from Tuesday and we can store it in the fridge. Donations of lettuce, tomatoes, celery, carrots, fresh herbs, etc are all welcome! We will eat our salad as a recess snack.

(Please feel free to pack a normal recess if you think your child will need something more substantial...or might not like the idea of salad for recess haha)

Thank you for your support.
